    Think of the graph as three areas, call them A,B,C, divided by the two vertical lines.

    You know what the total area under a pdf is.

    You know what B is.

    and you're told a relationship between A and C.

    See what you can do.

    If you know the area between 79-a and 79+b is 0.6463, then the rest of the area is 1-0.6463.

    You also know the ratio of the area behind 79-a to the area past 79+b is in a ratio of 1:2 - so use simple ratios to find out the area behind 79-a.

    The normal curve is a pdf, a probability density function. And the total area under any pdf is 1.
